Real country pub and great food

Three of us had dinner midweek. Amazing seafood ravioli starrter. Good choice of home cooked favourites..The sea bass was great. Mid price and worth the extra. The service and food quality make this restaurant stand out. Going for Christmas Day lunch.

Was a lovely place and was greeted with i suspect the floor manager that day with our complaint and he dealt with it in a very professional manor and made us feel comfortable by letting him know the wrongs on the day a bit more table service would have been nice and smile from the waiter would have been nice...

We travel up from Bedfordshire just to have Sunday lunch. My daughter is in. Wheelchair and we have always been greeted with professional and friendly staff. Lunch is good value yes a little bit dearer but I feel that there are excellent ingredients involved. I can hardly believe some of the bad reviews we have never had a bad experience..

We stopped her spontaneously and were warmly welcomed by the bar staff. Nothing was too much trouble, they were great. The food as delicious, the environment was beautifully decorated to a high standard and cleanliness, just everything you'd expect form a high quality country pub. Great for families!

At the ripe old age of 31 and a good up bringing, I let myself down by judging this book by its cover/reviews. The company I work for decided to send me away on a human factors course and booked me in at this b&b, naturally I decided to Google it to see what I was in for. The reviews... More

We came for a quiet birthday lunch. The reviews were a little mixed but overall it looked like it would be worth trying. So glad we did. The staff we met on a Friday lunch were all very welcoming and attentive. It didn't take long to settle at a table and for drinks to be brought to us. It was... More

Stopped for Sunday lunch. We were made very welcome, including our dog. We had roast beef and pork which was beautifully cooked. Good honest food. The addition of roast parsnips would have made this a perfect meal! Pudding was excellent also; the cheese board was very good value. Lovely cosy atmosphere and would definitely visit again.

Today we stopped for lunch. It was wonderful and excellent food. The service was also excellent. I had a jolly good steak and my husband had a very good fish meal. We had a long leisurely lunch. The atmosphere was good and we were given plenty of time to choose and sit with coffee after our meal. We feel it... More

Booked a table in advance for this pub about two miles off the A1M close to Stamford Nice looking pub just outside the village of Easton on the Hill. Set Sunday lunch, plenty of choice at every course and of course excellent roast beef. We were fairly early, so service was quick before the pub got busy. Suggest you need... More

We visited for an evening meal on a Saturday night. We should have spotted the warning signs of an empty car park but having not visited for a very long time thought we should give it the benefit of doubt. We were rushed to our table on arrival and presented with a pleasing and varied menu. The scallops for starters... More
